With Rabbi Nehemia Polen and Musician Lev Friedman

As we move from the repose of Shabbat to the active posture of the week- Jewish tradition offers us a beautiful way to graciously transition from one noble stance to another- the celebration of “Melaveh Malkah” (“Escorting the Queen”) Rabbi Nehemia Polen with musical accompaniment by Hebrew College Rabbinical Student Lev Friedman will help us create an evening filled with symbolism, mythic lore, song, dance and story. We will explore Hasidic teachings and melodies on sacred time- and weave in the spirit of the upcoming holiday of Tu B’Shevat. Join us for this opportunity to savor the rhythms of the cosmos, to open our eyes to the ever-present sparks of light accessible everywhere—especially in the hearts of our fellow human beings and the world as a whole. Refreshments for the body as well as the soul will be provided. Co-sponsored by LimmudBoston. General Admission $10. Students register for free (
